After this date, programmes will remain open if places are available, and programmes will be closed as soon as they are full, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.

The Geography MA/MSc study programme is made up of optional and required modules. You must take modules with a total of between 180 and 190 credits to complete the programme.
In addition to a compulsory dissertation, you will select from a range of related modules. Your choice of modules will determine whether you take the MA or MSc pathway. If you are enrolling for the Geography MA programme, you are expected to choose options in human geography, whereas the Geography MSc programme will mean you will study physical geography.
If you are studying full-time, you will complete the course in one year, from September to September. If you are studying part-time, your programme will be delivered over two years, you will take the required module in the first year, and the dissertation in your second year.
Assessment methods will depend on the modules selected. The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of essays/reports, oral presentations, lab work and occasionally by examination.
